Aurora medical center fire protection

Aurora Medical Center

  • Hooper Corporation was contracted to provide fire protection to the nearly 800,000 square foot Aurora medical facility near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
  • The owner group, general contractor and construction supervisors were all on site throughout construction.
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) was implemented. This was instrumental in successfully prefabricating 21 miles of sprinkler pipe with little to no rework necessary once the pipe arrived on site.
  • Pipe fabrication was completed using Hooper’s own pre-fabrication facility to ensure quality and timely delivery and meet scheduling needs.
  • Within the four-level facility, Hooper completed 31 wet-sprinkler zones, 6 anti-freeze zones, 6 pre-actions systems, 12 standpipes, and a 1250 GPM fire pump system.
  • The project was completed on an aggressive schedule in less than two years.
